Randy Travis remains in critical condition but is awake and has stabilized, according to doctors at Baylor Health Care System in Dallas and Randy’s publicist.
Randy was admitted to the Baylor McKinney hospital on July 7 for a heart problem and then transferred to the Heart Hospital Baylor Plano for a higher level of support. Since that time, he has also suffered a stroke that required an emergency neurological operation.
“That operation was successful,” reported Dr. Michael Mack, medical director of cardiovascular disease at Baylor Health Care System, during a video update . “At the current time, Mr. Travis’ condition is stabilized.”
Mary Davis, Randy’s fiancée, also commented on Randy’s condition and the encouragement they have received from fans. “First and foremost, I just want to thank the friends, the family, the outpouring of love and affection that has shown up at the hospital and at home and through several different avenues of support,” Mary said. Mary added that Randy is awake, responding to voices and appears to understand his surroundings and current environment. “He’s miles beyond where any of us thought he would be a few days ago,” Mary said.
“We ask for your continued support,” she continued. “I know that Randy would be so touched by that when he understands the magnitude of it all.”
Doctors also note that they will continue to provide updates as Randy’s condition improves.
